30 Days of Summer Safety - Georgia Child Passenger Safety
Car seats and boosters provide protection for infants and children in a crash, yet car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13. That's why it's so important to choose and use the right car seat correctly every time your child is in the car.
A garden hose exposed to direct sunlight during summer can heat the water inside the hose (not flowing) to 130-140 degrees which can cause burns, especially to children and animals. Let the water flow for a few minutes to cool down before using it to spray people or animals.
